Dr. Morelli (Welch) is an exercise physiologist whose overall research program is to promote physical activity among cancer survivors, with an emphasis on preventing or managing chronic disease symptoms and side effects among cancer survivors. She is particularly interested in setting the foundation to move beyond the “one size, fits all” physical activity prescription and developing tailored, personalized physical activity prescriptions for cancer survivors based on their personal, social, emotional, and physical circumstances.
Dr. Morelli’s presentation will share her expertise in designing, conducting, and analyzing technology-supported behavioral interventions to maximize adherence and health outcomes among cancer survivors, and using innovative research strategies such as ecological momentary assessment and patient-centered outcomes research. She holds active funding as PI from the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, and the Pat Summitt Foundation. Dr. Morelli will share results from two of her funded research projects focused on developing innovative technology-supported physical activity interventions, as a non-pharmacological approach, to manage cancer-related symptoms in cancer survivors.
Identify patient-centered approaches to physical activity intervention development.
Identify factors that influence participation in physical activity among cancer survivor populations.
Identify the relationship between physical activity and symptom management in cancer survivors.
